    Hey, let's add another fire-based caster to the game!
    I don't see breaking the hunter monopoly on ranged weapons as a bad thing as long as the new ranged class or spec feels different enough from hunters to justify its existence, just as monks feel different enough from rogues.

    They shouldn't use ranged weapons anyway, it's an idea I want to purge from these forums.

    We're talking about two classes that not only share a name, but now share the same armor type (since Demon Hunters won't wear INT mail), use the same weaponry, and would probably have a similar ability set, since there's only so many ways you can do physical ranged attacks.

    Honest question; In that scenario, who would play as a regular Hunter when you could play a Demon Hunter? Especially if this proposed class could tank as well.
    Who would play a mage when you can play an ele shaman and be able to heal or melee to change it up?

    Who would play a rogue when you can play a windwalker and then heal or tank if you want to?

    Why does anyone play DK when you can play a paly and still tank and dps, but also heal?

    Keep in mind; We're talking about a DH spec that uses bows/xbows.

    And Demon Hunters could logically only summon Demons as minions or pets. Sound familiar?

    Warriors, Paladins, and Death Knights don't share names. If we had a Warrior, Holy Warrior, and a Dark Warrior class you'd have a point here.

    And again I have to point this out. They use SPELLS. So would use intel not agility. And if they did why does it matter it's meant to be competitive.
    What type of spells would an INT-based Demon Hunter use? The same kind that the Warlock uses?

    Also the appearance. You do realize there can be many different looks even with the shirtless thing...like I points out before just make the shirt count as markings and make a shit ton of different chest markings and color.
    Chest markings doesn't change that 95-99% of people playing this class would be shirtless Night Elves with Warglaives.

    Teriz you are really becoming a bit contradicting...you want this class to be ORGINAL but yet you want it to also take some things the hunters are unique with...what the fuck man? Post something that isn't a simple fix of matter of opinion or thought please...I know my post seem like that but I can actually back up mine...well except the mail thing that is just going appearance honestly

    That's like saying everyone that plays DK is going to wanna be Arthas.

    I thought everyone playing a Monk would play Pandaren. And I never thought anyone would play a Gnome Death Knight.

    Welcome to the pitfalls of a narrow archetype.
    Demon... Slayer.

    3 speccs:
    -physical range (aka something like drow ranger or like the D3 DH), so bows and guns aren't hunter exclusive
    -melee range (the typical DH what everyone wants)
    -dunno maybe a caster specc

    If I were to make a DK class, I'd go with melee dps/ranged physical dps/tank. I just don't think they can do a spell caster spec without being too much like warlock, where they might be able to do a ranged spec that feels unique from hunters.

    All of those examples are very different from each other, and don't share a name with each other.

    And watch the popularity drop like a rock. People want to play a Demon Hunter, not a knock off.

    Which is why its pointless to even implement such a class.

    And seriously, another pure DPS spec?

    Spells: you realize there are really not that many unique spells in this game right? Like really take away the names of ALL the spells in game and just think about what it does and what you are doing....so spells being the same a lock Idc about. Make chaos bolt into chaos arrow or demon bolt or fel bolt at the end of the day it's only a name and diffrent animation.

    Appearance..again: know what ppl used to say all death knights would look like Arthas and yeah there are some out there that still try tht look. But at the end of the day just as the unwritten rule goes....if you see someone calls illidanzz and looks like him then fine but until proof is given 90-95%(big guess their btw) will look like those three guys, which by the way outside of their attitude,quest, and story I don't like how they look even for a night elf it's kinda annoyingly basic.

    And as for pets demon hunters have only ever summoned two things. Dreadlords the weak ones. And fel hounds. That's it...and honestly make a new fucking hound looking pet and give it demon hunters. Problem solved.

    Anything else?

    Oh right the warrior issue.

    Warrior is a basic thing no matter how you put it, warrior used to be the same basic thing you say as soldier. So if you are noob, look through everything and look at
    Warrior-
    Paladin-
    Death knight-
    And see what they are
    A fighter that uses its strength to defeat enemies and protect allies.
    A fighter that uses its strength to defeat enemies ,protect and heal allies using its power of light.
    A fighter that uses its necromancy and strength to defeat enemies and protect its allies.

    It becomes pretty basic and you'd probably pick the paladin or death knight.

    Also there is only one set of glaives in the game. And unless blizz makes 1-swords the basic glaive and not a new weapon type it's gonna stay the only glaive set ingame outside starting quest.

    I think they could do a DH ranged spec. I agree the names are similar, so they'd have to name demon hunters something else, but I don't see why they couldn't do a bow/gun based ranged dps spec that feels different from hunters, in the same way that windwalker monks use the same weapons and armor as combat rogues but feel very different. I agree on the name though.

    And this is from someone that does NOT want a demon hunter class.

    They could do all that its just teriz is thinking otherwise and being closed minded. Hell you could just make them use bows and crossbow and leave the gun for the hunter only, having the same name isn't always the main issue..he's just making it one, and for some idiotic reason into grasping the fact a demon hunter doesn't need agility for all three specs. And doesn't need to be a three way hybrid.

    what about brew master? everyone wanted it as a class and they got it as a spec and everyone is happy (atleast I didn't hear/read any qq about it)

    and yes another pure dps:
    we have 4 pure dps
    we have 7 hybrids
    (3 of them only semi hybrid(priest, dk and warry), 1 full² hybrid(druid) and 3 full hybrids(shaman, pally and monk)

    The fact that so many of their abilities are taken by other classes is the best argument against Demon Hunters.

    Demon Hunters are a lore based class. If your going to make a Demon Hunter Class, and give it none of it's lore abilities, why even call it a Demon Hunter, other than giggles. It be like making an Archmage class, but he can;t cast spells.

    Op is more looking for Demon Hunter for the name more than anything else. He could have no abilities, just auto attacks, but be called Demon Hunter, and OP would be thrilled.

    The majority of this class concept's popularity stems from its name. You change its name, and its popularity drops, because people will say that its not actually a Demon Hunter. Like I said, this class isn't a part of a larger archetype like Brewmasters were to Monks, so its very limited in the direction it can go.

    I can say that giving it the Diablo 3 treatment just seems cheap and lame. Demon Hunters don't use bows/xbows in WoW.

    About Rogues and Monks; The benefit that those classes have is that they're traditionally very different from each other. Rogues work in the shadows and assassinate. Monks fight head on and fight toe-to-toe. Rogues use daggers and poisons, Monks use staffs and chi.

    This is why broad archetypes are important.

    Because it was pretty well known at the time that Brewmaster was a monk of some kind. You had a Chinese anthropomorphic Panda called Chen who did Kung Fu. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out what type of class that would morph into.

    and yes another pure dps:
    we have 4 pure dps
    we have 7 hybrids
    (3 of them only semi hybrid(priest, dk and warry), 1 full² hybrid(druid) and 3 full hybrids(shaman, pally and monk)
    Yeah, I wouldn't lump semi-hybrids and full hybrids together. The only class type that isn't sitting at 4 is the full hybrids. That seems to indicate that the next class will heal/tank/dps. Also there's way too much DPS clutter as is.

    To use monks as an example, there was no WoW lore to suggest monks using weird mist spells to heal people, but Mistweaver works. I could see them expanding on DH as well to make a range spec.

    I'm not saying DH would make a good class, with or without an alteration to the name, I'm just saying if they could, I think they could make ONE of their specs ranged and make it feel different enough from hunters. They could also do what they did with brewmasters and fit it into a larger class, so let's say demon hunters aren't a class but a melee dps spec within some larger class.

    Again though, I agree a class named demon hunters when we already have hunters is silly, but I don't think that even if the DID ad them as demon hunters that all hunters would drop off the face of the earth. And while there would be complaints about a name change, I don't think WC 3 demon hunters are popular because of the name, but because of what they are. If they'd been called demon slayers I think they'd still be just as popular.

    The real reasons to not add DH is that all their iconic abilities are folded into other classes. I don't buy the death coil argument because warlock DC was death coil in name only, it had nothing to do with the DK spell from WC 3 in the way it functioned. All DH abilities HAVE been added to existing classes with similar, if not exact, functionality intact.
